If your injuries will require future medical treatment, your claim's value should reflect that additional expense. Does your doctor or surgeon believe you will need more treatment in the future? What are the estimated costs of that treatment? In Texas, the law requires that your doctor state that it's probable that your future medical treatment will be necessary. The mere chance that future medical treatment might happen doesn't add any value to your case. Note: You can't assume your doctor will include future medical estimates in your records. This is an issue that an experienced personal injury attorney is used to handling and will be able to obtain through deposition testimony when necessary.
